Domaine Joseph Voillot
This domaine has been producing wine now for five generations, but it is since the
present owner, Jean Pierre Charlot, son-in-law of Joseph Voillot, took control that it
has moved into the league of serious wine producers.
The domaine consists of 10ha of vineyards, including some prized sites in several
1er Crus. The grapes are partially destemmed and the wines matured in oak barrels
(20-35% new) for 12-18 months. Without doubt one of the finest domaines in
Volnay, these wines are never heavy or over extracted. They offer the fragrance,
charm and beauty so typical of Volnay.
So sweet, opulent abd structured with notes of raisin, cherry jam, sweet vanilla spice and crème de Mure that makes one think of Port. It grows in the glass, becoming more brooding and lush with evevry mouthful. Perfect balance, incredibly long finish.
Try with roast duck with redcurrant jus, seasonal greens and chive butter potatoes.
